    Goodness I am loving this drama!

    I don't think it's moving too fast and because I have such faith in the writer, I expect the other 44 episodes will be great.  For those who are worried that this might sag in the middle (as is common in the sageuks on the main channels - e.g. Dong Yi, Queen Seon Deok and *sigh* Horse Doctor) I do not think we have much to fear.  The channel showed us Queen Insoo last year which was hands down the best sageuk I have seen in years and I don't think there was really a period of sagging. 
    I started watching Queen Insoo too but then it was only with English Sub until episode 18 
    Did you watch it somewhere with full English subs or are you fluent in Korean?
    I've been wanting to watch Queen Insoo for so long :(

    Kim Hyun Joo:'' Yam Jun makes me happy''

    image

    Kim Hyun Joo confessed that she's really happy because of Yam-jeon.

    The JTBC weekend drama had a previewing event in North Jeolla Buan.

    Kim Hyun Joo said, "I am happy these days to be in the drama. I am having fun and the response is good too. The process of creating something better with the cast and staff is great".

    "The part where Yam-jeon goes into the palace was interesting. The way she is so bold and undefeated in front of the court ladies is fun".

    "I like the way Nam-hyeok's romance gives me the mellow feeling. It was sad though. It is useful to think about it when I need to make myself weaker for a different scene".

    "Cruel Palace - War of Flowers" is a drama about the king's women who fight for power and authority within the palace. It can be seen every Saturday and Sunday at 8:45PM.

    Thanks for the thread and all the effort involved by all.....

    I've been a silent fan/stalker of the thread but had to log in and give a shout out to the actors on the soliloquy by the king in ep 6.   I was smiling so broadly while watching because it was truly Shakespearean.  Love <3

    Edit:  I need to sign in more often to know how to use the site because I see a character not typed....

    Thank you for the OST. I've been waiting for the release since I first heard it in the drama.

    I'm glad Kim Hyun Joo is having fun playing this role since I have fun watching her portray this character as well. Yam Jun is a very interesting character. And it's really a treat to see all the veteran actors, especially Lee Deok Hwa and Jung Sung Mo, act out the best performance.

    I just finished all the first six episodes of Cruel Palace and I'm totally loving the plot of the drama. In every episode I watched, questions popped into my mind in which I'm curious to find out in the upcoming episodes. This is a one-of-a-kind Saeguk that's why so many people are interested to watch it. 

    OM! Poor Nam Hyuk. I agree with you LHRCN. He might take a revenge on what happened to him. Now the scenes are getting more intense. I guess this will be the third Saeguk that I will consistently watch. I can't wait to watch the next episodes.

    ah OMG, Yam Chun is totally crazy in this ep, i think she is not her anymore, she is so evil now.
    ep 7 spoiler*********

    The first scene started off as she went to see the king and wanted him to do thing for her
    Injo promised to make her the queen if she gives birth to a son.
    The crown prince has a meeting with the chinese Prince, crown prince was angry at something
    the crown princess was so professional dealing with his emotions.

    at home, YC's mother and shot doctor prepared something for her to give birth to a son,, this scene is funny, haha
    KJJ ordered shot doctor to treat him again, he then asked something about YC, i think shot doctor told everything about NH.
    next scene, YC went home, angry at something, she wanted to talk to the shot doctor
    she said something like:'' in order for my son to live, i have to live to''
    so she told him to do something for her.
    at NH's house, he watches his mother sleep its like his last goodbye with her.
    then he went to meet YC at the temple.
    she told him about the child and how he is going to be a KING.
    he holds her, they spend a little time together, later after YC left
    the men in black attacked NH. He was only hurt a little bit
    then he ran away to the mountain, he still fight with those men, the he saw her appear somewhere. then he lost his control/ or he knows that she wanted him to die and takes this secret with him, so he gave up the battle, then men killed him and dumped him into the river
    when the men left, YC appeared, she didnt cry but just standing there to look at him in the river, then she left
    next time she is in labor and is about to give birth.
    She gave birth to a DAUGHTER. she asked the maid is it a son?? no one answered
    she knew its a DAUGHTER. so she was so angry and tell them to do something with the child ( i dont understand what she ordered the maids to do)
    she was so crazy here knowing that she just gave birth to a daughter.(OMG she has become crazy, who would do something like that to your baby)
    *end*******

    preview
    the Queen enters the palace, knowing the queen is young and innocent so YC sides with her and tells lies about the other ladies
    the war among the ladies started.

    hi @kcmg25
    I am happy that you have time to watch this drama, and you already watched the 6 eps
    yah while watching drama so many questions pop into my mind too, i cant guess what happens next, just that i think the story will goes like this but it goes the other way, Omo

    I dont know if NH will take revenge because he loves her so much, i think i will watch the engsub first to understand exactly what happened and what did she tell him???? OMG poor NH, how could YC do that to him and his child? OMG

    I actually cannot believe she did that! Grrr I'm so annoyed at her!
    The scene of him falling down reminds me a lot of what happened to Cha Jeon-Soo in Dong Yi, but her then returned
    I'm guessing the same thing will happen to NK (His character photo is him being a police guard?) and I can smell revenge coming towards YC

    yes the character photo of NH is a police man or someone who works for the military or so???
    well i dont know if he takes revenge once he comes back, because i dont know what YC was planning with shot doctor, she might planned all of this.
    the scene when she spent time with NH, we see KJJ was playing the instrument which means he told her to get rid of him and she did listen to him,. but behind his back i think she ordered the shot doctor to save him

    as for her newborn baby, I think she said to abandon her, she did it to show KJJ that she slept with NH just to have a child which fulfill KJJ's wish to take over the throne.
    I think all she did is just to save NH and her child? that is what I think. but she made me scared, I almost got a heartattack because of her, so scary and evil

    No doubt, Yam Chun is already greedy in terms of power and attention of the king. We can now see clearly that she would dare to do everything for the sake of having a son to become a king and her to become a queen. Though she wants to save Nam Hyuk and her daughter, she's still evil and scary. I somehow missed the old Yam Chun. Though she was spoiled before, still she cares for others and naive too. I guess she was blinded to all the benefits that she is getting from the time she entered the palace. 

    I hope Nam Hyuk won't get any revenge towards Yam Chum, but who knows? Maybe he would just act like he cares for Yam Chun, but inside his mind is a plan of revenge to what she and Kim Ja Jeom did to him. Well, just a guess. 

    I really love this drama though the main character is evil and scary. I do believe that from the outside is a woman who wants everything to be in accordance to her decision even if it is evil, but deep inside she has her own weaknesses too. Can't wait to watch episode 7 with English subtitles.

    Yeeaaah! That could be her plan! (I hope it is)

    Ahh this drama is making me go crazy! xD

    So I'm guessing her son will be the king's actual child - unlike her daughter (I doubt that they would repeat a similar situation again, but then again who knows?) :)

    Is anyone else watching other dramas along with this one? So many sageuk dramas this month!

    @LHRCN thanks for the recap dear. the baby just looks like NamHyuk cute. Well, if it were a boy, then the drama wouldn't have so many episodes left :D This drama is awesome. It shoes us the bitter reality how it may was for those women at the palace. Those  who seek power and possesed intelligency, but they were limited to the possibility/chances of a woman in a men-dominated world at that time.

    i know although i am hating YC for hating her daughter, i pity her at the same time because people will look at her with different eyes when she gives birth to a DAUGHTER. during those times its the woman's fault having a daughter.

    I think at first she just wanted to enter the palace, being a concubine of the king to make everyone kneel infront of her, the more she gets to know the true power, the more scary she is and that is how she became like this or even worse.
